Movie Review: Prey for the Devil

Directly from the vein of the Exorcist and every other film that it inspired, this is just another demonic possession movie that redresses the traditional plots and storylines to appear to be something new and fresh – but it’s just not.

The story centers on a Roman Catholic Church that combats the global rise of demonic possessions by opening schools to train priests in the art of performing exorcisms. Nuns are forbidden from performing this ritual, but when Father Quinn notices that Sister Ann has a particular gift for getting through to demonic outcasts, he agrees to train her.

Thrown into the spiritual frontline, Sister Ann finds herself in a battle to try and save the soul of a young girl who is now possessed by the same demon that tormented her own mother years ago.

I’m not going to bore you with an in-depth review other than to simply say that it was not scary, at all. A few jump scenes here and there and the make up was not bad and very remeniscent of The Exorcist, but this movie would have been more appropriately titled “Prey for the Audience” that they don’t fall asleep.
